... water content. Adult feeding decreased desiccation or starvation resistance, regardless of the diet provided. Irrespective of larval diet history, newly emerged, unfed adults had significantly higher dehydration tolerance than those that were fed. Lipid reserves played a role in starvation resistance...

... despite a modest difference in rate of water loss (0.3% h –1 ). Water loss before succumbing to death (dehydration tolerance) was much higher in D. nepalensis (82.32%) than in D. takahashii (∼50%). A greater loss of hemolymph water under desiccation stress until death is associated with higher desiccation...

... kinase S6 ribosomal protein dehydration tolerance The African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis , is native to southern Africa where it lives in swamps, lakes and rivers as well as man-made bodies of water ( Tinsley and Kobel,1996 ). The frog is largely aquatic and rarely ventures onto land. However...

... and dehydration tolerance, individual C and S females were placed in vials as described above, and mortality was scored at hourly intervals. Females were weighed as described above immediately prior to desiccation and again after drying overnight at 60°C. Water content of the females was estimated from...
